Here’s the lineup for Boston concerts this weekend.
Self-described as “Victoriandustrial”, Emilie Autumn was Courtney Love’s violinist. Corsets, Glam Rock with strings and edges. Whether you like the music or not, it’s going to be a unique show. At the Armory in Somerville. You have been warned. (update: I think this show is sold out. bummer.)
Patty Larkin. A dependable folkie at the Homegrown Coffeehouse in Needham. If you’re in the ‘burbs, a great night out!
Cowboy Mouth is at the Middle East on Saturday night. This act is way too big for this venue; don’t miss a chance to see them in such an intimate venue!
Touring around his highly regarded new release, “So Runs the World Away”, Josh Ritter is at the House of Blues. Intriguing, unique, but accessible.
Mary Gauthier is the classic singer from the wrong side of the tracks. She didn’t start performing until later in life, and the earlier part of the life was apparently pretty rough. If you’re free Friday night, take a drive up to Marblehead, have a nice dinner and take in some gravel-voiced, honest stories.
You can see this list in more detail here.
As always, drink responsibly (or better yet get a driver!), drive safely, and information on all this and more can be found at boston music this weekend.
